The NBA has postponed until May 8, the opening of clubs ‘ training centers for players, according to the official website of the Association.
Earlier, it was reported that the NBU plans to allow clubs to open training bases for individual training of players from May 1.
Several restrictions apply to training events. In particular, no more than four players can be on the floor at the same time, and there is also a ban on the participation of a coach or assistant coach in training.
The NBA decided to move the deadline to May 8 after Atlanta’s management refused to open the club’s training center. The team’s General Manager, Travis Schlenk, said he would like to wait and see how events develop over the coming weeks. According to the NBA’s plans, Atlanta was one of the first to open a training center, as the state of Georgia, where the club is located, was one of the first in the United States to ease isolation measures due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The NBA said it might again postpone the opening of the clubs ‘ training centers if circumstances develop.
The NBA season was interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
